When I had the opportunity to review products developed by Intimate Rose for older women’s pelvic and vaginal health, it came at a perfect time. For several days I was making extra trips to the bathroom and getting that “annoying feeling” that comes from having a bladder infection. I had just finished taking a round of antibiotics for a bout of bronchitis. The drug’s side effects include yeast and bladder infections. Intimate Rose sent me three products to try and one of them was specifically for urinary issues and yeast infections.
Flora Bloom is a prebiotic/probiotic formulated to support digestive, urinary, and vaginal health. Two of the ingredients are cranberry fruit extract and D-Mannose, known to help prevent UTI’s. It was exactly what I needed so I quickly unsealed the bottle and downed two capsules. In as little as an hour, I started to feel better and the “annoying feeling” subsided.
I continued taking 2 capsules a day for a week with plenty of water and my symptoms completely disappeared. Flora Bloom contains 4 probiotic strains that have been carefully selected to balance your body’s pH to eliminate odor and vaginal discharge. It also helps to boost your immunity and keep your gut health in check. I found it to be gentle but definitely cleansing. It’s surprising to see what comes out of you but it sure feels good afterward. To order a bottle of Flora Bloom please click here.
If you’re experiencing menopause symptoms and want relief from a natural product you might want to try Ever Bloom. It’s safe, estrogen free, and contains reasonable doses of Vitamin D3, E, B 1, 2, 6 & 12. Other ingredients include Black Cohosh Extract, Red Clover, Passion Flower, and Black Pepper Extract. All you have to do is take 2 capsules a day.
Ever Bloom shouldn’t be consumed by anyone who is pregnant, nursing, children, or someone who has known medical conditions. However, it’s made from natural plant-based ingredients and provides relief for hot flashes, irritability, mood swings, bloating, bone loss, sleeplessness, and night sweats. If that’s you, click here to give it a try.
I guess you could say I’m one of the lucky ones. I’ve never had much in the way of menopausal symptoms other than weight gain. (and that’s probably because I’m a foodie) I’m 63 now and have managed to avoid taking hormones and supplements for menopause. But, I know that many women do experience symptoms and Ever Bloom by Intimate Rose may help.

Kegal Exercise System
Okay, we all know we get loose in the caboose as we age and that includes our Kegel muscles. They begin to lose strength and that can cause urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse or trouble achieving orgasm.
Intimate Rose has a Kegel Weight system that will help strengthen your Kegel muscles. The box contains 6 weights in shades of pink from white to dark fuchsia. They’re made of soft and safe silicone, are non-porous, hypoallergenic, BPA-free and are easy to clean with mild soap and water. Each weight is 2.5 inches long and the weights range from 0.9 oz to 4.4 oz. If you leak when you laugh, sneeze, or cough, have a loose vaginal canal, urinary or fecal incontinence, vaginal organ prolapse or a boring sex life, give them a try. I recommend checking with your doctor first before using them.
How do they work? You guessed it. Insert them into your vagina starting with the heaviest weight you can handle and gradually work your way up to heavier weights. Then, walk around holding on to them for about 15 minutes. If you’re really loose, you may have to wear underwear to keep them from falling out. They come with a cute bag to store them in when you travel and a training guide. Each weight has a pull cord to make them easy to remove.
I won’t be demonstrating this on my blog but take my word for it. They have proven to be effective for women who range from new mothers to beyond menopause. Order your Kegal Exercise System here.

I waited until I was sure I didn’t have a bladder infection to try the Kegel weight system because I didn’t want to irritate it any further. I was also hesitant to stick them inside me because there hasn’t been much action going on for a long time. Finally, I decided to try out the 2 lightest weights. I was happy they stayed in and was glad to know I still had a vagina. LOL! After I removed them, I felt a little pressure so, I’ll be honest and say I have mixed feelings about using them. I may just stick to doing regular Kegel exercises.
My Favorite Intimate Rose product
It’s definitely the Flora Bloom. I’m taking 1 capsule a day for now. It’s just enough to keep my fauna and flora balanced and everything moving smoothly.
